Jamie Redknapp very impressed by Norwich City's Timm Klose

Norwich City

Norwich City have kept back-to-back clean-sheets.

Jamie Redknapp has told the Daily Mail that Norwich City defender Timm Klose has impressed him in recent matches.

Klose was only brought to Norwich during the January transfer window, but the centre back seems to have added steel to Alex Neil’s side’s defence.

The 27-year-old has immediately been brought into Norwich’s starting line-up, and he has helped the East Anglian side keep two clean-sheets in consecutive matches.

Norwich first drew 0-0 with Manchester City, before beating West Bromwich Albion 1-0 last Saturday.

And Redknapp said: “Norwich's 0-0 draw against Man City last week was only a good result if they backed it up with a win against West Brom, which they did.

“I was impressed by Timm Klose. He kept Sergio Aguero quiet and did the same with Saido Berahino.

“I thought Norwich were dead and buried but those two results give them a lifeline.”

Norwich have the fourth worst defensive record of any team in the Premier League this season, but they have started to tighten up recently.

Neil has restricted his side’s attacking intents, and the Canaries have reaped the rewards of a more cautious strategy.

The Canaries are now out of the relegation zone, and they will be looking to put clear daylight between themselves and the bottom three when the Premier League resumes after the international break.
